22 young people will fly to Romania early Thursday morning. You are welcome to YWAM Dalarna on Wednesday 19 July at 7.30pm to see the team, bless them and send them on their mission trip!
Välkommen till Liljeqvistska parken på Sveriges Nationaldag den 6:e juni, för en timme av bön för Sverige och för Borlänge. Det här är en bönesamling för alla kristna, oavsett församling eller samfund.
“… om då mitt folk, som mitt namn är utropat över, ödmjukar sig och ber och söker sig till mig och lämnar sina onda vägar, då skall jag höra det i himlen och förlåta dem deras synd och bota deras land. ” (2 Krön 7:14)
Last year more than 165,000 people entered Sweden seeking asylum as refugees. This has almost overwhelmed the nation’s ability to process, absorb and integrate the newcomers. Many old hotels, youth hostels and campgrounds have been used for refugee housing. Many are sitting and waiting for a year or more for a decision on their status or if they will be sent home.
In our local area – we have good contact with new friends in Borlänge, Säter and Hedemora – including ethnic muslims and Christians.
We have been receiving teams from different YWAM centres to help us, and the local churches reach out with the love of Jesus to these people. Many have come from horrible situations and faced many dangers en route to Sweden. Just coming to listen, to talk and drink tea and coffee brightens up their (and our!) lives!
Please pray for us and that more workers would come to this ‘harvest field’ (Luke 10:2)
This seminar will be in English with translation into Swedish!
Please pray for our foreign workers! Recently the Swedish Immigration office has been trying to kick out foreign missionaries to Sweden after 3 years in the country. Strangely (or not) it appears Buddhists get permanent residence after that time, but not Christians…
Marco och Nohemi and their children have received a letter from Swedish Migrationsverket informing them that they must leave Sweden within 3 weeks. They have been working with YWAM Linköping for 6 years and are part of the leadership of the YWAM base there. Suddenly the visa policy (but not the law) has changed and it seems Christian missionaries are not wanted to stay here for more than a few years.
This is a difficult situation for us as we are an international mission and believe that we (Sweden) needs foreign workers to bring a positive effect and change to our nation.
